Luckily we only spent one night here!! Did not stay in the room as we requested when making the booking, the en-suite bathroom did not have a door and the shower did not have a shower head. As this was during winter they did not offer extra blankets and didn't provide towels. We also found out from travelling friends that... More

Dear traveler, Thank you for your review. I spoke to my team in PE about this issues. They mentioned to me that your original booking was for a dorm room. However when you arrived they decided to put you in an en-suite private room that sleeps 4 people. I am sorry that you were not satisfied with the room we... More

We only wanted to stay 2 nights but had to extend and the staff were great. We had to use public transport to get around PE and they gave us all the advise and directions we needed. Then on our second night I got sick (nothing to do with the hostel) and had to go to hospital. The night manager... More

Didn't find there was much to do in the area, but the hostel itself was very nice, very friendly staff, big kitchen, free tea and coffee etc. The rooms were quite spacious and it's a bazbus stop, which is ideal if you're travelling around.

The facilities themselves were good, enjoyed a few games of pool and made use of the Wi-Fi, very helpful guy on reception who pointed us to a great bar down the beach for dinner and a beer. We were in an ensuite double accessed from outside. There is no door to the bathroom which means the room itself is a... More

Dear Traveler, We have looked into the dampness in the room. It looks like the extractor fan was not operating correctly. This is something we should have picked up sooner. We apologise about that. Some of our rooms have concertina doors that close off the bathroom from the main room. We thank you for also pointing out the positives during... More

If you are passing through PE is a simple and nice place to stay one or two nights. Good location. Good staff. Good price. During the winter seasons it would be very welcome a heat at the room, Fortunatly one extra blanket could solve the problem.

We were very happy with our stay. Facilities are great and service is good. Just a reminder that this is a more self catering accommodation so you will need your own food, towels, soaps, shampoo etc. Cutlery and crockery is there. Convenient area and quick to all the main routes. Ample safe parking. Enjoy your time at Island Vibe. Worth... More

Very nice place for a get away. Home away from home feel. Location is good. Service is one of the best around. Some entertainment activies on the premises as well to help pass time and you don't have to leave the premises if you don'y want to.

Arrived here on my own with an incredibly warm welcome from the staff.

It was comfortable staying at these lodgings, i was only there a short time but everything was ok, i would suggest they heat the spa pool for people to use early in the day as it takes a good 5 hours to heat & in winter is good to have.
